These Laws are relevant to Junior Rugby League from 6 years to 12 years, inclusive. These are a modified form of the game from the International Laws (for ages 13 years and above).
Junior International ages 13 years to 18 years and Senior 19+ Open age group competitions both play under the International Laws of the game.
Outside of the traditional laws of the game, Rugby League is also played under slightly different formats.
The Safeplay Code was developed to emphasise safety and good conduct within the game of Rugby League by creating the best possible on-field environment and actively controlling undesirable actions.
The NRL Code of Conduct provides all participants – players, parents, coaches, referees, spectators and officials – with some simple rules that assist in delivering a safe and positive environment to everyone involved in the game.
